Celebrating Authentic Teaching and Learning,
October 21st and 22nd, at the Holiday Inn, Mansfield, Massachusetts
Headlining the conference this year will be two speakers who extend their passion for writing beyond the classroom walls.
Friday’s luncheon speaker, Rhina Espaillat, is a bilingual American poet and translator who has published eleven collections of poetry. She was a founding member of two long-lived, active poetry workshops: NYC's Fresh Meadows Poets, and the Powow River Poets in Newburyport, MA, and has served on the faculty of the yearly West Chester Poetry Conference. As a writer, she emphasizes the importance of relationship between reader and poet. As a previous educator, she brings quite a perspective on the importance of teachers as writers.
Saturday’s speaker will be Penny Kittle, author, teacher, and advocate, who devotes her time to help teachers and students develop a passion for reading and writing. She is known for her books, Book Love: Developing Depth, Stamina, Passion in Adolescent Readers, Write Beside Them: risk, voice, and clarity in high school writing, Inside Writing: how to teach the details of craft & My Quick Writes, and The Greatest Catch: a life in teaching, and Public Teaching: one kid at a time. She also recently co-edited a collection of Don Graves’ work, Children Want to Write: Don Graves and the Revolution in Children's Writing with Tom Newkirk.
Complete conference information will be available in early September. Interested in presenting at this year’s conference? We are currently accepting proposals for both Friday and Saturday sessions!
